First of all, the 2006 Board Game Internet Awards are finally up.
I went through all of the Domain Name links that start with "boardgame" and found about what you would expect.
* The vast majority were parked domains for rent or sale with the expectation that someone will want to pay cash for them.
* Many of the domains are familiar to my readers (boardgamegeek, boardgameswithscott, boardgamebabylon, etc...).
* A number of the domains are in an Asian language, and are probably storefronts.
* A few are local stores that didn't excite me.
* A number of them claim to be companies that will help you produce your board game.
